When I have two directories with the same beginning on the same level and I try to use the both as sources.

  • foo

  • foo-bar

    apigen -s foo -s foo-bar -d out

    ApiGen 2.6.1

    Sources "foo-bar" and "foo" overlap.

I have a feeling this overlapping check is a relict from the good old ApiGen 1. This was the way how to prevent a file to be processed (and included) multiple times causing a possible fatal error (redeclaring a class). Looking at how the file list is built in Generator, I would say this whole check can be removed.


I just ran a local test because I was having the same issue and found that if you add the following after line 280 of Config.php, the problem is resolved, because the two paths become distinct.

if( is_dir($value) ) {

This simply ensures there is a trailing slash (backslash for Windows) if $value is a directory.

I've just commited a change that fixes this issue :)
The check is not necessary because it is technically impossible to process a single file multiple times (full patname is used as an array index).
